    Congrats to you dhawbaker! My son also received a nom from Cathy McMorris right before Christmas. His noms were to USAFA and USNA. He is hoping to attend the USAFA. Where do you attend HS? My son attends Mt. Spokane.

    Araforce: That's awesome! I go to Pullman High School, and I'm shooting for USMA or USAFA as my primary academy choices. Good luck to your son and his endeavors on getting into USAFA!

    That's awesome you got nominated to all the academies!
    I was the principal nominee for Jay Inslee and got my appointment to USMA on December 23rd!
    Do all the other congressman in WA do the principal/ranked method?

    A few days ago I was informed by my Liaison officer for USMA that my nomination was a principal nom to West Point but not to the other academies. (He was on my congressman's review board) He gave the impression that she gave out principal noms and then the rest of her noms were unranked.

    So I'm just waiting for an appointment package now from USMA. :smile:

    How long did it take you to receive your appointment after you were informed you were the principal nominee to USMA?

    No, but I have a principal nom and I received a letter from WP saying I was triple qualified. My liaison officer told me that I am guaranteed an appointment as a principal nom as long as I am qualified.

    Rep. Adam Smith (9th district) does not do principal/ranked method. He sends 10 names and lets the academy rank them.

    I got my appointment to USMA today! :smile:
    WA-05

    I've heard that the senators in WA don't send out their nominations until late January.
